Benu Networks parental control solution supported on Wi-Fi and cellular networks

Benu Networks, a provider of innovative virtual network solutions that enable service providers to rapidly create and deliver next generation IP services, has announced it has the industry´s only genuine parental control solution available in today´s market, the company said.

Unlike other vendors, Benu Networks´ tamper-proof parental control solution safeguards children by extending the parental control policies outside of the home — to any device and network that a child may access.

Currently, all other vendors only offer a partial parental control solution with various enablement constraints and significant limitations to the actual enforcement of the controls set by a parent. Most vendors provide parental control policies that can only be enforced on the home network, this leaves a child completely unprotected when accessing other networks and allows for complete unrestricted online access whenever that child is not at home.

Other parental controls solutions are enabled by a mobile application loaded onto the child´s phone, however these applications can be tampered with and easily deleted or disabled from the phone. There are also parental control solutions that are only enabled when connected to a Wi-Fi network, which allows a child to access the cellular network to avoid any online restrictions.

Benu Networks´ parental control solution ensures that the security policies assigned by a parent to a child are enforced across all devices and networks — wherever and whenever that child is online. Benu Networks´ solution is also tamper proof since it is not enabled by a mobile application downloaded to a child´s phone. Utilizing Benu Networks´ intuitive dashboard, parents can easily administer the appropriate settings specific to each child.

Benu Networks´ carrier-class Virtual Service Edge (VSE) software platform enables the rapid creation and delivery of next generation IP services over a converged infrastructure, and empowers service providers to increase revenue, expand market leadership, and meet the dynamic needs of their business, residential and mobile customers.
